It's my house, so I get to decide what's art. That means the less I think the better.
And the bigger the mess, the more extraordinary.
In The Studio…
I went down to the studio today but did set a time limit – I would give myself a few minutes to center myself and focus, and then touch base with whether I truly wanted to create or not. Then I focused on one particular paintings, really being present with how each little brush stroke and hot dab of glue felt. And after three hours (okay, so it was a bit longer today…) I said alright, it’s Friday, let’s get out of here.
But here’s what I did!
I was trying to recreate the vision I had in my head - all of these happy singing flowers cascading down these two, textured, grandiose intertwined trees..
You see it?
Anyway, this painting does deserve a better photograph, but I do like how this came out.
But I did enough in a day, so I stepped away. It's always good to take a break when you are at your most intense creative point.
Literally embrace the artist within you.
